Two-terminal vibration sensors detect acceleration and shock as electrical signals

20-07-2015 | Mouser Electronics | Test & Measurement

Murata PKGS Series vibration sensors are now available from Mouser stock. The two-terminal devices detect acceleration and shock as electrical signals. Using bimorph piezo elements clamped at the one-end (Cantilever construction) with original polarization technology, these shock sensors have high sensitivity and excellent durability. The shock sensors are a re-flow solderable SMD type. They can have an inclined primary axis so that an appropriate shock sensor can be chosen for shock detection in a HDD (Hard Disk Drive) and optical pick-up control in optical drives and optical-magnetic drives.
